    The menu variety is great at Minerva’s - something for every taste bud. My husband had pasta primavera with a delightfully light cream sauce and yummy veggies. I was looking forward to my veggie stir fry with chicken, anticipating freshly prepared vegetables for a veggie-centric dish. But the broccoli smelled and tasted of being frozen! The chicken chunks also seemed to have been factory-prepared. Huge potential dining but low on delivery because of these shortcuts.

    Let's see, we ordered a drink, then soup and salad to relax before the entre came out. Entre came right out immediately, so no soup or salad or relax time. Ordered a dessert to share, 20 minutes later it arrived. Really didn't taste fresh, disappointed. The main course food was good, just not a pleasant experience.

    Customer service was excellent. I was told about the special of the night, which was Salmon Caper with Linguine. Was horrible. No taste what so ever and I wasn't even given a good portion of Salmon. I was given very thin crispy pieces of Salmon that tasted like these pieces were previously frozen and dipped into water to expand like a sponge. It was just nasty. Tomato bisque very good and chicken lettuce wrap was ok. Flavored Peach tea was awful as well. It pretty much tasted like water. Yes, in the end I was not charged for my awful entrée, but I think $45 for one pasta entrée, two beers, a peach tea, and an appetizer was a bit much. Won't go there again.

    We made our order on line and they gave us 2 minutes to Hold the table. We were 10 minutes away. The table was available, but the service and food not so much. The waitress put in the wrong order and although the steak was correct, the side was chosen by her. It took two trips to get the correct food and it was cold. I would NOT recommend this establishment.
